Lucille Bluth vs. the Disney Princesses

So I went a little nuts with Vine!

Boozy-witchy Bluth matriarch Lucille has generously taken time out of her day-drinking to snap some sense into the damsels of Disney. They could all stand to lose some weight, by the way. You want your belt to buckle, not your chair. (Click the microphones on and off to hear the audio.) READ FULL STORY

'Lana Del Rey's Hunger Games': Amazing. -- VIDEO

Does this image just piss you off so much??? (I felt dirty making it, but the “crowd reacting to subject in horror” motif just worked so well.) Then maybe you don’t want to watch a double parody of The Hunger Games and Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” as performed by Second City comedian Holly Laurent. But you should anyway, because it’s hilarious. READ FULL STORY

Ben on 'The Bachelor' is Alfalfa from 'Little Rascals'

So said EW.com reader “jr” on today’s episode recap. Good work, gumshoe!

Do you think the original Alfalfa (Carl Switzer) would be caught dead clunking out a shaky rendition of David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” on the piano? Is this a rhetorical question?

Casey Abrams shaves beard for Inflammatory Bowel Disease awareness, completes transformation into Cabbage Patch Kid cop -- VIDEO

It’s an important milestone in any doughy young boy or doll’s life. Watch American Idol season 10 standout Casey Abrams (have his dad) shave his beard after the jump. Then tell me what frustrates you more — the kid’s complete inability to groom himself or his neglect to put Haley Reinhart on speakerphone?!

If They Mated: Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter

We’ve finally found him!

Congratulations to American Idol reject Ben Harrison for having such hilarious genes!

My recap of the Portland auditions will be up shortly. Conan and Andy’s twisted little lovechild was pretty much the high point of the episode for me.

Update: Here’s my recap. What did you think?

We all know 'Beauty and the Beast 3D' got robbed

Plenty of Oscar snubs yesterday, but perhaps most egregious is the Academy’s woefully unenlightened cold shoulder toward Best Supporting Actor Lumière. Don’t they realize that the farther they walk away from his eternal flame, the less they will be able to see? What’s it like, Oscar voters, to live inside a great big gilded castle of DARKNESS?

PopWatch Pop Quiz: 'The Bachelor' or 'Intervention'?

Last night’s Intervention featured Kimberly, an alcoholic who lives in a big house and spends all of her spare time drinking. The Bachelor features “ladies” who “live” in a big house and spend all of their spare time drinking. It’s only a matter of time before the Champagne Flute of Fate will get us all.

Try to determine which quote is from which show. It may be harder than you think!

‘THE BACHELOR’ OR ‘INTERVENTION’? for Jan. 23, 2012

1. “I am 100 percent thinking I cannot do this. I’m scared.”
2. “I sat there and I was just crying in the street.”
3. “F—- her! F— her!”
4. “I almost want to rip her head off and verbally assault her.”
5. “I am one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.”
6. “I just can’t listen to this because it’s too absurd.”
7. “It’s always about you, you, you, you, you. One is a lonely number, and you’re going to die.”
8. “It’s the most painful thing in this world. I want what I couldn’t get here. I want all that good stuff; I want it to last and I want it to be right. And I’m skeptical that it even exists anymore.”
9. “I wonder if you’ll take this seriously enough.”
10. “The only emotion I feel when I look into that house is shame.”

GOOD LUCK! And the answers are…. READ FULL STORY

Megan Fox laps up the force of life from own clone

It’s the alternate Lost finale we could never have seen coming. Actress Megan Fox and Circe impersonator has set herself up on a deserted island and transformed herself into DOZENS of Megan Foxes in a commercial for Brazilian language school CCAA. “Welcome to Megan Fox Island!” she announces. Help yourself to a Skinny Girl Margarita from her magical urn, lost boys, but for God’s sake order it in English. READ FULL STORY

'The Lion King Rises' mash-up: Oh, Simba just can't wait to be Batman! (VIDEO)

Alternatively, you could picture Jonathan Taylor Thomas tearfully ripping up a glamour shot of Christian Bale.

Thanks to this brilliantly edited mash-up by Brad Hansen for revealing to us the first great truth of 2012: It turns out that this summer’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises is a rather believable allegory for 1994’s The Lion King.

Are you ready for THE STAMPEDE? I don’t think you’re ready for this stampede. Watch the video:

Snooki, Michele Bachmann top 'Bad Science List'

The Sense About Science (SAS) campaign has named Jersey Shore doctor of grain liquor Snooki and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann as two of 2011’s worst offenders of Bad Science. Bachmann went on TV to tell a story of a Tampa woman who claimed her daughter had become “mentally retarded” from an HPV vaccine, and Snooki — well, Snooki’s sort of a science experiment gone wrong in so many (and some delightful) ways that I’d like to give her scientific claim its own paragraph. Let it breathe a little, like seamen amidst a gust of sea air.

“I don’t really like the beach. I hate sharks, and the water’s all whale sperm. That’s why the ocean’s salty.”

The untethered inclusion of “I hate sharks” in there is almost poetic. Think about it for a few seconds. NO, I’m just kidding, don’t hurt yourselves. READ FULL STORY
